An oddity in this package, however, has to do with the animation (particularly the character designs and especially on Disc 2). It's not so much a complaint as an observation that Jubilee, Gambit, Rogue, Storm, and the Professor look noticably different in the second half of the episodes of Season 5 and I just wonder if there were different artists working on these episodes than the rest of the series (particularly notable in "Jubilee's Fairytale Theater" and the "Fifth Horseman of Apoccalypse" but especially noticable in "Graduation Day"). Anyway, it's just one of those questions that I would be interested in hearing an answer to (if, in fact, they used a completely different set of storyboard artists, resulting in altered character appearances).
In speaking of "Graduation Day"...honestly, I may have cried a bit myself at the end when an obviously dying Xavier was flown away without the satisfaction of seeing his dreams for a peaceful coexistence fulfilled. What a great and appropriate way to cap off the series though, as it was proven just how much all of these characters and their struggles meant to fans! Between "Graduation Day" and "Old Soldiers" (Captain America!), I have my favorite episodes of the fifth season.
Alas, if my greatest regret was to not give this show the chance it deserved while I was young, I'm only glad that I had the opportunity to give this show the second chance that I did not regret giving it! Thank you, Marvel and Buena Vista Home Entertainment
Having said that, I am really, really glad they released every episode on dvd. It's definitely worth a few bad episodes in order to have the whole thing. I do not regret shelling out the money for this at all.
